Careers360 has ranked top law colleges in India based on various parameters. In this special series of Law Colleges Ranking 2015, Careers360 brings you a list of law colleges ranked on the basis of research output. The advent of National Law School phenomenon has drastically changed the way law as a profession is perceived. What was once a less-preferred option has caught the imagination of the young, thanks to the NLS phenomenon.
With over 30,000 aspirants, law has picked up steam. But nearly 70% of Law Schools in the country still offer 3-year LLB instead of the five-year integrated BA LLB or other variants of the same.
Measured by assessing publication count scaled against authors; citations, h-index et al over five years (2010 - 14) in Elsevier’s Scopus database; the outcomes reflect the top most institutes. Though, it may be argued to suit an international framework, the good thing is that Indian Law Schools are gradually making their presence felt in the global legal community. The only IIT to have a Law School – RGSIPL, IIT Kharagpur – tops the list ahead of others, in almost all aspects with a huge difference in citations and h-index. NLU Jodhpur owes its overall high rank primarily due to its research activity. The Campus Law Centre at University of Delhi is beginning to feel the presence of others in this category. Among the private players, while JGLS excels; KLESociety's Law College, Bangalore and Amity Law School, Delhi are among the emerging ones to watch out for.
